Banking & Financial

The banking and financial sector has just seen the worst financial crisis in a long time. This sector will no longer be the same. The developed countries are bringing about new regulations and the developing economies are expanding their banking and financial sector.

There are many other changes happening in the industry, for instance:

  • The customer who had ample time to spend in the banks waiting for various services is now on-the-go
  • Giving attention and better experience to customer provides the banks the competitive edge in the market
  • Takeovers of weaker banks by the stronger players is the trend
  • Job security is replaced with perform or perish
  • A fixed salary structure has now given way to performance based incentives
  • Skilled employees are becoming scarce
  • The banking veterans are retiring and the bench strength is becoming much younger

To ensure their existence and growth, banks and financial institutions need to take steps to recover from the crisis and manage this change to remain ahead in the race.

The most critical factor which would enable the banks and financial institutions to deal with the multitude of changes and market challenges is the human resource. This sector will require skilled and energetic workforce to manage all the changes relating to IT, market competition, and corporate sustainability.

HR Challenges

To strengthen the human resources, the industry needs to overcome the following challenges:

  • Create a bench-strength of skilled and talented manpower
  • Ensure job-person fit by recruiting the right employee and ensure long term commitment
  • Create dynamic training and development plans to address the ever changing industry requirements and to cater to individual employee needs
  • Improve employee motivation and satisfaction and arrest attrition
  • Retain the highly skilled manpower and effective managers to ensure stability in implementing long term plans
  • Take decisions on letting go of employees who do not fit in with the corporate goals
  • Manage and integrate HR policies and employees post mergers or acquisitions  
  • Manage employees across global locations
